Vastu Guidelines For Upper Floors | An Architect Explains

Multi-level houses have upper floors which are reached through the Staircase. The Upper Floors are less noisy since the inmates spend more time together as a family in the living room, dining room and kitchen in the ground floor. The upper floors are generally used for private spaces like bedrooms, study rooms and family rooms where the inmates unwind, retire after a hard day’s work and sleep. The energy in the upper floors should be restful and comforting.

So, is there a way to make the upper floors a peaceful and soothing area? According to Vastu Shastra, the right placement of the rooms, the furniture, the doors and windows, the lighting and colours in the upper floors will ensure that it becomes a space full of calming energy. To know more about making the upper floor a vastu compliant space, read on….. 

Listed here, are some Vastu Guidelines for Upper floors. Since Vastu Shastra is a science, every guideline is based on logic and reasoning. As an Architect, I have attempted to explain each of these guidelines rationally and scientifically under the following headings, so that you have a choice and can decide what you want to follow or don’t instead of looking at Vastu as a superstition:

  • What are the Vastu guidelines for the placement of rooms in the upper floors?
  • What are the Vastu guidelines regarding master bedrooms in the upper floors?
  • What are the Vastu guidelines regarding children’s bedrooms in the upper floors?
  • What is the best Vastu position of a guest bedroom in the upper floors?
  • What are the Vastu guidelines for furniture and openings in the upper floors?



WHAT ARE THE VASTU GUIDELINES FOR THE PLACEMENT OF ROOMS IN THE UPPER FLOORS OF A HOUSE?

The Balconies in the Upper floors should be in the North, East or North-East. It should not be in the South-West corner. The Scientific Reason – A balcony or terrace in the North-East corner is preferred over a room , since this will allow the sunlight into the rest of the house. Moreover, it is comfortable sitting out in a balcony that faces the East and the North instead of the hot West or South. Also, one can expose oneself to the useful morning sunlight in this balcony. 

balcony-upper-floor-vastu
Balcony in upper floors should be in the North, North-East

The Bedrooms and Study rooms should be in the Upper floors: The Scientific Reason – Bedrooms, Toilets and Study rooms are private spaces which require calm and peace. By keeping them upstairs, away from the bustle of the main house, one can enjoy peaceful rest here.

The main bedrooms should be in the South: The Scientific Reason – The North is meant for the Living room and entertaining guests. Hence a private space like a Bedroom should be located far from the front and ideally, that is the South.

Avoid bedrooms in the North-East: It is meant for deities and prayer.However, in the upper floors it can be used for  The Scientific Reason – The North-East corner which is engulfed with early morning sunlight, is ideally suited and hence reserved for a meditation room or Puja room.

Avoid bedrooms in the middle of the house: The Scientific Reason – It is obvious that a room in the centre of the house will be used for movement and accessing all the other rooms, and hence a Bedroom that requires privacy and quiet, cannot be placed here.

Avoid bedrooms above the Car porch/Garage : The Scientific Reason – The fumes from the kitchen and the car exhaust that rise up, can be a nuisance and not good for the health of the inmates of the Bedroom.

Avoid Bedrooms above the garage.

 

WHAT ARE THE VASTU GUIDELINES REGARDING MASTER BEDROOMS IN UPPER FLOORS?

The Master bedroom should ideally be in the South-West in the upper floor of a house: This room should never be used as a bedroom for young children, as they will try to dominate. The Scientific Reason In ancient times, the main wealth of the inmates was agricultural produce and this was stored in granaries behind the house. The ideal location for these granaries was the South-West corner, because the South-West heat and the hot S-W summer wind kept the produce dry and free from moisture. Hence the Master Bedroom was preferred in the South-West, closer to the granaries to guard them from thieves. So also, this was not preferred for a Children’s Bedroom.

Avoid the Master bedroom in the South-East: The Scientific Reason – In the olden days, when the cooking was done on open ovens, and the combustible building materials were prone to catch fire due to the hot S-W summer wind, the kitchen was not allowed in the South-West corner and the North-East corners. Therefore, the South-East corner or North-West corner were reserved for the Kitchen and any other rooms were to be avoided.

WHAT IS THE BEST POSITION OF  A GUEST BEDROOM IN THE UPPER FLOORS?

The Guest Bedroom should be in the North-West: This corner represents Vayu or movement which implies that Guests who sleep in this bedroom will not stay for long and get going on their way. The Scientific Reason – A Bedroom in the North side is preferable for guests as it is closer to the living room and the front of the house. At the same time, it is away from the back of the house and the family members have their privacy. The northern Bedrooms also have the advantage of getting constant sunlight from the North.

WHAT IS THE IDEAL LOCATION OF A CHILDREN’S BEDROOM IN THE UPPER FLOORS, ACCORDING TO VASTU SHASTRA?

The children’s bedroom should be in the East or West side: The Scientific Reason – The West bedroom has the advantage of being bright and well lit in the evenings due to the West sun rays. Hence it is a good location for the Children’s Bedroom because they use it a lot in the evening for their studies after school and play. Similarly, the East bedrooms have the advantage of being well lit in the mornings for their morning studies.

WHAT ARE THE VASTU GUIDELINES FOR FURNITURE AND OPENINGS IN THE UPPER FLOORS?

Avoid storing heavy things in the Upper floors: The Scientific Reason – Structurally it is always better if the weight of a building is on the lower floors, since it lowers the centre of gravity, thus making the building less unstable.

Maximum number of doors and windows should be in the North and East sides of the Upper floors: The Scientific Reason – This is to allow the useful morning sunlight from the East and the constant sunlight from the North into the house.

upper-floors-windows-vastu
The windows and doors should predominantly be in the North or East

The ceiling height in the Upper floors should be less than in the lower floors: The Scientific Reason – For a building to look graceful and proportionate, the height of the lower floor should always be more than that of the upper floor. Otherwise, the building will look a bit unstable as though it will topple.

This post was about the Vastu guidelines for the design of Upper Floors. The Upper Floors are used for private spaces namely the Bedrooms, Balconies and the Study Room.

If you want to make the rest of the rooms of your house/apartment Vastu compliant, then go to:

    We are four generations living together. My grandfather, my father, and my 2 KIDS (age 9 & 5). I would like to receive advise which bedrooms should be allotted to whom. We have six bedrooms. Two on the ground floor ( 1 in SW, 1 W ) + four on the first floor (1 SW, 1 W, 1E, 1N).
    Hi Samir,
    Ideally let the ground floor bedrooms be for your grandfather and father as climbing stairs may be a problem for them. Give the SW bedroom to your dan=d and the W one to your grandfather. Hopefully both rooms have lot of light as elderly people need lot of sunlight. You and your kids can be on the upper floor. You take the SW one, and let the kids have the N and E bedrooms. Keep the W one for guests.

    ground floor of our house is on rent.First and second floor(duplex) where we are staying.Our kitchen is in the SE corner of first floor,while on our second floor SE has two toilets (back to back).Is it ok? Where should be the place of worship -first or second floor ?
    Hi Meenakshi,
    Having toilets above the kitchen is okay as the layout in a duplex cannot be tailored to be perfect vastu-wise. As for the pooja space, better to have it in the floor where the whole family tends to congregate and where it is practical space wise.

    I had question on using T-type stairs inside the house starting from west going up to east and then T-off to north & south.
    House is east facing, 55’W & 39’Deep. If I assume NE corner as (0′(Deep),0′(wide)) the right hand starting point (going up) is located at (12’D, 32’W) in the drawing and right hand corner of the landing is located at (7’D, 32’W) and then stairs go in north & south directions. The right hand corner at the top in south is (7’W, 37’D) and in north it is (3’D, 20’W). The stairs are 4’ wide.

    How much lower is the room? If it is very much lower, it may be inconvenient to go down many steps into the room. If it is just a step or two, then it is okay.

    Hi Rohan,

On the first floor, we have rooms in SW, NW, NE and a large terrace in SE corner. Below terrace is Kitchen on the GF. Below NE room is Car Parking. Is this fine?

Plot is 3600 sqft. South East side has an extension of about 12ft compared to south west side. Someone suggested me to skip basement part if i have ti have residence on top floor plus have a square compound wall. That means not use the extended part. Please advice.

    It is better to have a square or rectangular plan as it is stronger structurally. You can use the SE extension for landscape or some other purpose separately.

    Hi Vidhya,
    The double height family room is okay. But it will be better if you use some other bedroom as the master bedroom, because if you go through the net (which you obviously have already done), then you will be quite concerned about the master bed in the NE.

    It has nothing to do with Vastu. It is a matter of personal choice.

    Hi Senthil,
    I am not aware of vastu guidelines regarding division of property. It should be decided amicably based on your personal prefernces.

    Namaste Sir,
    We used to have a place where we recently given for developement. That got shared between 4 brothers and my father was second one..So they alloated my father 5th floor which was last floor..So in regard of health consequences we have taken 2nd floor in rent from our uncle (my father’s elder brother)…Can we stay in that house..My father ‘s younger one’s are staying back of mine on same floor ..(All plots are east and west facings)
    Hi Pavan Kumar,
    Since it is a temporary arrangement and keeping in mind the health issues, I think you should not look too much into the Vastu angle.

    Hi Dolly,
    You can build all that you proposed. But just keep in mind that there should be ventilation and light to the room and the rest of the house after you build the 4 floors.

    Dear sir,

    My younger brother is doing business in Ground floor and living in First floor. Whereas I being Elder occupied Second and 3rd floors. Now My brother wanted to construct pent house on 3rd floor. I was told that younger should not be in Top floor. Please tell me what is correct.
    Hi KVM Jaya Rao,
    Vastu suggests that the person on the upper floor will always have a dominant advantage since he can oversee everything from above. So obviously, the older persons prefer that advantage. So in this case, instead of referring to Vastu, decide on something amicably so that both parties are happy.
